systemic Candida is true its when it goes thru the colon and into the blood and yes I think you can die from it if not taken care of it... I myself have systemic candida and working on how to take control of it. Candida when it becomes systemic it takes the control of your whole body. it took control of mine because I found out to late. I have candida since I was a teenager and I am now 26 and found out a couple of weeks ago that I have candida.
